​​​​​​​​​IDEA Part B

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004 (IDEA) governs public school systems with regard to Special Education services. It became Public Law 108-446 on December 3, 2004. IDEA is comprised of:

  • Part A: Describes the general provisions of the Act.
  • Part B: Describes the Department's requirement to provide special education and related services to students between the ages of 3 and 20.
  • Part C: Describes the State’s requirements to provide services to children ​between the ages of 0 and 3.

In accordance with IDEA, states are required to report annually to the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Education on the performance and progress of the State under the State’s Performance Plan. This report is called Part B Annual Performance Report (Part B-APR). Part B-APR requires the Department to report on certain indicators that examine a comprehensive array of compliance and performance requirements relating to the provision of special education and related services.

Indicators for Federal Fiscal Year 2015-16 (published February 2017) can be found below, along with the Report Overview. Older Part B reports can be found using the Report Finder tool:
